Dick Delicious was formed in Mesopotamia in the fall of 1992. Formed by leisure specialist / freelance gynecologist Richard B. Delicious and Tibetan monk / chili technician, the pair had been searching for a drummer for twenty years when they found their first drummer, Harry Scrotum, hiding in the back of the van. Shortly after, they relocated to Atlanta and the trio began playing locally and recorded the first demo "Guns, Drugs, Skimasks, and Pornography". The tape (recorded on a cheesy 6?track in a basement) charted on collage radio and sold around 500 copies in a few months. The bands penchant for a variety of styles of music, scantily clad female dancers, outrageous onstage antics, and politically incorrect lyrics quickly made them one of Atlanta's top draws.



In 1994 DDTT hooked up with The Babes in Toyland's Spanish Fly label to put out the "I Wish I was a Dog" 7?inch. With the release of the single, the band broadened it's horizons and began to play regionally, and quickly gained followings in other cities.



By 1995, the band 'ttracted the attention of the, Atlanta based, Reality Records. The band recorded and mixed their debut CD in four hectic days, and it was released in the spring of '95. Dick Delicious went on the road road constantly in support of the CD. Shorty after the release of the CD the band parted ways with Reality, because they were a shitty half-assed operation and began pressing and promoting themselves. The effort payed off, the CD has sold 3300 copies with no real distribution and is currently entering it's THIRD printing.



By 1997 the band fell on rough times. DDTT briefly added a second guitar player B.L. Zebub, the group had gone through about seven drummers (in true Spinal Tap fashion), the band had all of it's gear stolen from their practice room, and Dick was arrested for possession of LSD while on tour. Things went on indefinent hiatus...



Delicious reformed in early 1998 with the best lineup to date, with drummer Busta Hymen. They recorded a new CD entitled "We Sold Our Souls for Wet Sloppy Holes", which was released in the summer of 1999 after Dick served a 7.5 month sentence in prison for possession of drugs. They are currently touring and playing supporting the new CD and are stronger than ever.
